    Producers Guild Nominates ‘The Artist,’ ‘War Horse’

    Published: January 03, 2012 @ 9:20 am

    By Steve Pond

    The producers of “The Artist,” “War Horse,” “The Descendants” and “Hugo” are among the nominees for the Producers Guild of America’s top feature-film prize, the Darryl F. Zanuck Producer of the Year Award for Theatrical Motion Pictures, the PGA announced on Tuesday.

    Also nominated: “The Help,” “Midnight in Paris,” “Moneyball,” “The Ides of March,” “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” and “Bridesmaids.”

    Among the films that did not receive nominations are Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life,” a critics’ favorite; Stephen Daldry’s 9/11 drama “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close”; Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Drive”; and the spy drama “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.”

    In the TV categories, nominees included “Boardwalk Empire,” “Game of Thrones,” “Mad Men,” “Modern Family” and “Glee.”

    The Producers Guild Awards are typically one of the most reliable predictors of the Oscars, though recent changes in the Academy’s Best Picture rules could affect that reliability this year.

    In the last decade, the PGA winner has gone on to win the Oscar for Best Picture six times, including the last four in a row. Over its 21-year existence, the award has coincided with the top Oscar 14 times. 

    The PGA followed the Academy in 2009 when AMPAS decided to increase the Best Picture field from five to 10; it nominated eight of that year’s 10 Oscar nominees, and nine of 10 the following year.

    This year, though, the PGA stuck with a slate of 10 rather than adopting the new Academy system that could result in anywhere from five to 10 nominees.  

    Crucially, the PGA is the one awards body that uses the same preferential system to count final ballots as the Academy, making its awards for “The Hurt Locker” and “The King’s Speech” particularly strong indicators that those films would triumph with the Academy as well.

    Assuming that the Oscar slate is similar to the Producers Guild’s nominees, the use of the preferential count should make this year’s winner a clear Oscar favorite as well.

    The Producers Guild Awards will take place on Saturday, January 21 in the Grand Ballroom at the Hollywood & Highland Center.

    So, can we still safely eliminate “Bridesmaids” and “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” from the Best Picture nominees?

    Rango was the last animated nominee.

    Tree of Life, because of the 5% rule, is still definitely in the running for BP.

    Yay Bridesmaids.  Meh, everyone else.  Two insurgency candidates for Oscar BP went by the boards today; Tree of Life and Harry Potter 7.2.

    It does have a terrific critical response. But this doesnt inspire me with any kind of confidence for it’s eventual inclusion. I’m optimistic, but I’m not gaga optimistic.

    Too busy trying to predict the oscars to note the great producing of the Harry Potter series. They nominated the first movie but not the last and most successful and best one? Ridiculous.

    The absence of J. Edgar – which has done better so far than its response would indicate – should also be noted. (It was not still going to be a BP nominee, but in the margins this might indicate a tick down for DiCaprio’s chances).

    Yes. This one hurts. And, we all have a very good theory as to why this happened.

    I tried so hard to enjoy the Harry Potter series, and I think with better Direction it could have been truly dark and creepy. I actually do find them for children (not that that is remotely a bad thing, Rango would be in my top ten this year.) I was just always expecting something more.. A political point, moral, social or otherwise.. Nothing.
    This shows me that The Ides of March is probably where most people have ToL. This is Clooney afterall, with Globe and now PGA nominations (and one hell of a cast) I think this could surprise.
